ATC Monday's #001 - "Read All About It"
It's Monday night, which means it is time for the first ATC in my ongoing series!
I wanted to produce an ongoing project of mini makes to try out various techniques, colour combinations and to work as a library from which I can build on and of course share with you!
For my first ATC venture,I wanted to work with one of my favourtie combinations; Titan Buff, Paynes Grey and Quinacridone Gold.
List of products used;
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Titan Buff
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Paynes Grey
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Cadmium Red Hue
DecoArt Matte Medium
Staz-On Jet Black Ink
Paint one MDF ATC is a base layer of Titan Buff.
Apply a wash of Paynes Grey over the surface if the ATC, building the layers with darker layers to the edge.
Once the Paynes Grey wash is dry, apply a wash of Quinacridone Gold - again building the layers and depth.
Take a section of old text and glue it to the ATC, sealing the paper in place using Matte Medium.
Add a stamped element to your ATC. Here I have used a pen nib design stamped on to deli paper with Jet Black Staz-On ink. Sealed in place with Matte Medium.
Edge the ATC in undialuted Paynes Grey to create a frame.
Add a greyboard heart motief, painted in Cadmium Red Hue and embellish with the word "art".
Happy Crafting x x x
